My Happy Place Sew Along - Quilt Label!!


Welcome to week twelve of the 
Sew Along!
Join me here each week 
when I will be doing tutorials
 on the blocks for the quilt.

 I will be posting each Monday 
right here on my blog 
and you can follow my tutorials 
any time during the week that 
 is convenient for you.

For this sew along...
We are making the 
My Happy Place Quilt
74" x 88"

The quilt is made with my newest fabric
 collection called STITCH...

Along with several Bee Backgrounds:)

If you are just joining us 
and need a fabric kit...
 just do a quick google search 
to find out which quilt shops 
may have one left for you.
Simply type in 
"My Happy Place Quilt Kit"
to find one!

As all of my 
Sew Simple Shapes Sew Alongs go...
We are using the shapes
for the pattern of this quilt
and of course the Sew Along Guide and my tutorials each week.

The set of shapes that we are
 using for this quilt are called

I have already posted the
 post which details all of the supplies
 for the sew along and how it works.
I have also given the link there 
for the free PDF Download 
of the Sew Along Guide

to read that post.

When you have all of your
 blocks for the quilt completed...
Remember that everything that 
you need to know about
 cutting and trimming up your blocks...
and putting them all together with 
the borders and sashing...  
is of course in the sew along guide.
It's not anything tricky just basic
adding on borders:)

But something that is NOT 
in the guide is my quilt label!

I usually do a blog post at the end 
of my sew alongs showing you 
how I made a label for my quilt.

Sew...are you ready?

Remember when I did this tutorial
 on block seven a few weeks back?

Well I thought that it would be
sew perfect to use one of my 
quilt labels from my panel.
It's called of course
"My Happy Place"
Multi Label Quilt Panel

The center yellow square 
in this block is cut 4 1/2"...

And so I simply grabbed one of the labels...

And used my 4 1/2" Trim-It Ruler
 to center it and fussy cut!

I like to use the 
Micron Pigma Pens 
when writing on my labels.

Easy Peasy!

I cut the pieces for the block...
(remember that the measurements
 are in the guide)

I sewed my block together and
 added the borders just like in the tutorial.

I love how it turned out!
Because I like to appliqué my labels
 onto the back of my quilt 
when I'm using my widleback fabric 
like for this quilt...

I just cut my Sew-In Interfacing 
the same size as my block...
place them right sides together 
just like I do when sewing my
 Sew Simple Shapes
and then sew 1/4" seam allowance 
around my block.

I cut an X in the back of 
my interfacing for turning...
I shape and press:)

Now that I've got blocks and
 my label finished ...
this is everything that I need 
to finish it up!!

I'll be back here next week 
with the Big Finish post 
and lots of pictures 
of my finished 
"My Happy Place Quilt"
